12th August (1918)

Most of us in this tent are on the mend and frantically hungry, so don’t object to being put straight on “ordinary diet” by the doctor.

Far be it from me to complain, but the medical people certainly have extraordinary ways.  Perhaps they go on the “kill or cure” principle; it certainly came as a shock to one’s tired and empty internals.

Strolled down to the river and found it a considerable body of water.
